Zooniverse Birthday – SpaceWarps

spacewarps

 

That’s right, the SpaceWarps project launched one year ago today! Since it’s launch the project has gone through two very successful phases resulting in the discoveries of multiple new gravitational lensing events. These events occur when the light from a distant galaxy is bent and focusses by another galaxy closer to Earth. The project is not active at the moment but you can view the discoveries made by our volunteers at www.spacewarps.org
